Coronavirus in the world: Quebec will apply a tax to the unvaccinated

The pressure on the unvaccinated in different corners of the world continues to mount. After the commented statements, -last week- of the French mandarin Emmanuel Macron, explicitly affirming his desire to “screw their lives”, the Canadian province of Quebec, where some 8 million inhabitants live, chose drastic measures such as a health tax.

At a press conference, Prime Minister François Legault was very explicit, announcing the decision to apply a tax to the unvaccinated:

“All adults in Quebec who do not accept at least a first dose in the next few weeks will have to pay a bill. Because it has consequences on our health network, it is not the whole of Quebecers who should pay for it, “he said.

The prime minister added that “the 10% of Quebecers who have not received any vaccine should not harm the 90% who have been vaccinated.”

A few days ago, Quebec had announced that certain non-essential businesses would be closed to the unvaccinated, to start selling alcohol and cannabis, also establishing a curfew from December 31 at 10 p.m.

With this decision, Legault also tries to recover the political initiative after being the subject of harsh criticism for the management of the current wave of Covid-19. The head of health in Quebec, Horacio Arruda, resigned from his position last Monday as a result of the health crisis, the day 62 people died from Covid, bringing the death toll to 12,028, the highest in Canada. Yesterday, Tuesday, 2,742 people were admitted, of which 255 were in intensive care.
